THE INTERNATIONAL-LEGAL EVALUATION OF THE MOSCOW AND KARS AGREEMENTS – 2011-2

On the 90th Anniversary of their Signing

Summary

Armen Ts. Marukyan

The agreements signed in Moscow on March 16, 1921 and in Kars on October 13 of the same year, were sealed by gross infringements of norms and principles of International Law. With the help of the document signed in Kars, an attempt was only being made to “legalize” the Bolshevik-Kemal deal; which proudes ground to consider the Kars document not as a separate agreement, but as an attachment to the illegal document signed in Moscow.

The Republic of Armenia, as a subject of International Law, today can use the opportunities of International Law to neutralize or at least soften the threats of the aforementioned documents, which are not favourable for the Armenians.
